Ballet is classical theatrical dancing which originated in the courtfestivities of Renaissance Italy and was then brought to France, where it prospered under Louis XIV. Louis founded a school for dancers and that is why the terminology of ballet classes the world over is French. A ballet class is carefully designed to prepare the body for the physical demands dancing places on it.

Tap dance involves manipulating the feet so that metal plates attached to the bottom ofthe shoes strike a hard surface in a variety of ways, creating a kind of music by spelling out rythms. It is America's own development, a blending of the Irish jig and English clog dancing with African rythms. It all came about on the streets of New York in the 19th century when Irish immigrants exchanged steps with freed African slaves.
